“Come Dine with Metrolink” at #mfdf 2011

Last year’s festival saw two events run in conjunction with Metrolink – dining experiences along the Altrincham and Bury lines, with several courses being served up at various eating establishments along the way. This year the events move onto the two newly opened lines: MediaCityUK and Chorlton. Sadly at Chez Manchester Transport we’re already counting the hours down ’til next payday (new spectacles being expensive) but for those with some spare pocket money, this year’s line-up looks like this:
